Shepherd of the Field

In September, each parish is assigned a new “Shepherd” to support in the upcoming year.  It is our intention to affirm our priests in their ministry to the people of God.  Our support can be by notes or letter of encouragement; acts of kindness; prayers for our Shepherd; having masses offered for him; simply saying “thank you” for accepting God’s call; remembering them on special occasions (feast days, holidays, ordination and birthday anniversaries); speaking with a positive attitude about all priests and showing our appreciation for their service to the Church.
